Why Choose A TechSpan Custom Shed?
While standard, pre-designed sheds work for a lot of people, sometimes, a business needs something a bit more specific. A structural steel shed is a large investment, so it is worth taking the time to consider what your shed needs to have in order to make your job easier.
If you have particular machinery or equipment that needs to be housed in your shed, is it going to be easy to get in and out? Maybe you need specialised loading and unloading areas with high-clearance for tipper trucks, an integrated system of sheds positioned to make your work more efficient, or a single multi-purpose shed designed to meet all your needs.
Taking the time to plan, consider your options, and ensure you’re getting a custom shed that is structured to work for you is an important first step.
With more than 20 years experience, we have been developing an ever-strengthening reputation for quality structural steel building solutions. Our expert design consultants can help you design the perfect shed, get any necessary council approvals, and arrange on-site installation. The TechSpan Smart Build System means we are there to help at every stage.
Custom Shed Options
In many ways this is the single most important decision in your project. It is a juggling act managing space requirements, budgets and sometimes site restrictions. It is important to consider for future expansion in this area as there is nothing more frustrating than having your hard earned expansion stilled by lack of space.
Most TechSpan buildings are constructed with a gable roof. This design is simple and functional making it suitable for most applications, but you may also want to consider a skillion roof or curved roof for your custom shed.
Have you considered your current and long term requirements in this area? Maybe you have been planning for some larger machinery or some higher pallet racking. Extra height is not as expensive as you might think.
Custom Bay Spacing
The Bay spacing refers to the spacing of the portal rafters lengthways down the building. Our normal bay spacings range between 6 – 8 Meters. We can accommodate spacing both smaller and larger than this to suit individual requirements.
Custom Mezzanine Floors
Including a mezzanine floor in your new project design is a cost effective way of increasing the floor area of your building without increasing its footprint. TechSpan can accommodate all your requirements in the area including stairs and balustrading.
TechSpan engineers can arrange for a column to be removed from an opening in your building. The weight is transferred to those adjacent by a lateral truss. This is great for situations where you might have large or awkward shaped machinery to get under cover, such as combine harvesters.
Custom Sliding Doors
Sliding Doors are the most versatile and cost effective door option, having virtually limitless configurations. From a standard opening, to a whole sliding wall. Large doors are no use if you cannot open them! We insist on over-engineering our door hardware to ensure many years of trouble free operation.
While the majority of sheds are clad with high tensile roll formed cladding, either Zincallume or Colorbond, there are other cladding options to consider. You may need fire-rated cladding, precast concrete, insulated structural panels, or more architectural cladding options to enhance the design of your shed.
If you already have an existing building, it may be an option to create a new extension as your business grows, rather than adding an entirely separate structure. Our design consultants can work with you to create a custom extension that joins to your existing shed and is structured to work for your needs.

Is A Custom Designed Shed More Expensive?
While sticking with a standard shed design and size might save you some of the initial cost, our streamlined design and engineering process means that many of our customisations can be added to your ‘base’ shed design at very little extra cost.
The other important consideration, though, is the ongoing cost and efficiency savings a custom shed may be able to provide for your business. For example, Elders Killara partnered with Techspan to build custom designed commodity storage and batching sheds to streamline their day to day operations. While the initial outlay was higher than a standard ‘off-the-shelf’ shed might have been, they have calculated the increased efficiency will save them more than half a million dollars per year, meaning the custom sheds essentially pay for themselves.
